DIY Concrete and LEGO Table

DIY Concrete and LEGO Table

Maker Chris Salomone loved the idea of river and ocean tables. But he was sick of seeing the same materials – glass and wood – used over and over again. So he made a river table that uses concrete as the land and LEGO pieces as the river.

LEGO Air Force One 747

LEGO Air Force One 747

LEGO and aviation enthusiast BigPlanes shows off an incredible custom build – a scale replica of U.S. Air Force One. He used roughly 25,000 bricks to build the 6-foot-long model of the 747 jumbo jet, which features a fully-detailed interior. Be sure to check out his YouTube channel for more amazing LEGO aircraft.

LEGO Death Star Trench Diorama

LEGO Death Star Trench Diorama

Beyond the Brick shows off one of the most epic LEGO Star Wars builds ever. Anthony Ducre spent 7 months on this 50,000 piece diorama of the Death Star trench run from A New Hope, including an X-Wing fighter that “flies” through it on a track with Vader’s TIE Fighter on its tail. The crashed UCS Super Star Destroyer is a nice touch.

The Universal LEGO Sorter

The Universal LEGO Sorter

We’ve seen machines that can sort LEGO bricks before, but they’re generally limited to just a few specific shapes or colors. Daniel West’s machine is much smarter, using AI algorithms to identify and sort nearly 3,000 different LEGO shapes and colors. We think it’ll need more than 18 sorting bins to be really useful though.

The 12 Rebuilds of Christmas

The 12 Rebuilds of Christmas

London’s iconic hotel, The Savoy partnered with LEGO to create the Twelve Rebuilds of Christmas, a dozen installations made from 372,931 bricks. It took 2,200 hours to snap together a castle, a dapper tea-drimking lion, and a motorcycle fit for Santa. The massive centerpiece? A dragon-shaped Christmas tree made from 150,000 bricks.

Self-Erecting LEGO Crane

Self-Erecting LEGO Crane

The Brick Wall is an expert at building LEGO Technic machines that perform various tasks. For this build, he created a complex mechanism that can drive itself to a location then self-assemble a tower crane when it comes to a stop. He uses it to build a LEGO skyscraper.

LEGO Desk Calendar

LEGO Desk Calendar

Make every day awesome with this official LEGO desk calendar. The 11″ wide kit includes 278 pieces and instructions for building four numeric date cubes, a desk stand, and a businessman minifigure. Now, somebody needs to add motors to this and turn it into a clock.

LEGO Sheriff’s Safe Concept

LEGO Sheriff’s Safe Concept

Il Buono’s fun LEGO Ideas submission looks like one of those old-timey safes you might find in a movie about the wild West. The 548 part model has a smooth SNOT (Studs Not On Top) construction, a working combination lock, and various props, including some LEGO gold bars to store inside.

LEGO Tamburo Meccanico

LEGO Tamburo Meccanico

Inspired by a mechanical drum-playing machine designed by Leonardo Da Vinci, this LEGO music maker by Giuseppe Acito uses a series of pegs placed onto a spinning wheel to trigger sound sequences as its “fingers” press keys connected to synthesizers.

LEGO Frame Saw

LEGO Frame Saw

The Brick Wall has made some pretty nifty LEGO Technic machines over the years. This one continues his tradition of making them functional by including a pair of serrated blades which can rip through wood (or carrots). We love watching the grippy robot arms moving the pieces around.

Zombie Time

Zombie Time

We’re doubtful that the makers of The LEGO Movie franchise will ever make a zombie movie, but that’s okay, because Paramotion Films has already gone and done it for us, with their extremely well-executed short film that proves that dismemberment doesn’t have to be gory – at least when it comes to minifigs.

Stop-Motion LEGO Pizza

Stop-Motion LEGO Pizza

Stop-motion animator Bebop cooks up a delicious pizza with the help of some unconventional ingredients, including 2×2, 2×3, 2×4, and other studded plastic blocks. The 2-minute film is comprised of roughly 3,300 photos, and an unknown quantity of LEGO bricks.

LEGO DC Batman 1989 Batmobile

LEGO DC Batman 1989 Batmobile

To celebrate 80 years of Batman, here’s an epic LEGO kit of the Batmobile, based on its appearance in Tim Burton’s 1989 movie. The 3,306-piece model is 23″ long, and has a sliding cockpit and pop-up machine guns. Includes minifigs of The Dark Knight, The Joker, and Vicki Vale. Drops 11/29/19, with an exclusive mini replica through 12/5.

LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils

LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils

Inspired by a fan-submitted concept, you can now buy official LEGO fossilized dinosaur skeletons.

LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure

LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure

LEGO pays tribute to its iconic minifigure with a 5:1 scale version carved from FSC-certified oak with adjustable plastic hands. The 7″ figure looks great as-is, though its surface encourages customization. Includes a gift box, 29 bricks, and a 28-page minifig history leaflet. Available 11/3/19 to LEGO VIP members, then 11/8 for everyone.

Mechanical LEGO Beehive

Mechanical LEGO Beehive

This LEGO construction by The Quinten is the most charming and adorable thing we’ve seen this week. The mechanical build features a beehive structure with some googly-eyed bees buzzing around as its crank is turned. The project is currently seeking support on LEGO Ideas, and we’d love to see it put into production.

LEGO Ideas Typewriter

LEGO Ideas Typewriter

Steve Guinness‘ concept for a typewriter made entirely from LEGO not only looks awesome, but it’s now achieved the 10,000 votes required to consider it for production. The design features a working mechanism, driven by a hand crank. Here’s hoping LEGO decides to make it.

LEGO Go-Kart

LEGO Go-Kart

We’ve seen several life-size vehicles built from LEGO bricks, but most of them look as costly and complicated as the real cars they’re based on. The guys at LEGO remote-control maker BuWizz built something more down to earth – a working LEGO go-kart that can hold a human rider. It’s not fast, but it’s still nifty. (Thanks Rob!)

100 Wheel Lego Vehicle

100 Wheel Lego Vehicle

It took the Brick Experiment Channel quite a bit of work to put together this over-the-top LEGO creation, but what they ended up with was a crazy wheeled train of sorts, driven by a total of 100 wheels, 50 axles, 11 motors, and 4 battery boxes. It’s not the most reliable or agile ride, though.

LEGO GTA

LEGO GTA

While LEGO has bent some of its rules about violence by offering weapons with some of its Star Wars sets, the brand is still pretty much about clean, wholesome fun. But that didn’t stop Nukazooka from imagining a LEGO movie based on the world of Grand Theft Auto.

DIY Cardboard Minifig Costume

DIY Cardboard Minifig Costume

Maker The Q built this awesome larger-than-life, fully-articulated LEGO minifig costume using cardboard and hot glue. With more than three weeks left until Halloween, you should have plenty of time to try and replicate the design yourself. Are you up to the challenge?
